    • No I'm afraid everything here is done in the open. We are all very honest and straight dealing and also we have helped people in respect of this company before – they may be aware of us – but does it really matter? You started off the said asking how to they get away with it? The answer is that because even their own customers like to keep the problem secret so it becomes not generally known. If you want to do this secretly then you are simply bringing comfort to the sofa company. Is that what you want? Why?
    • I would like your help but I dont feel comfortable disclosing everything on here as it will be in the public domain.    Is there any way I can discuss my matter privately?    Thanks
    • Two hours to go (11am hearing) going to wear a hole in the carpet so nervous.
    • I'm trying to understand if you want some help with this or not. So far you haven't told us anything about your story – dates, prices, who you have complaint to et cetera. You have simply told us about how unethical it all is and asked how do they get away with it et cetera. Maybe one of the reasons why they get away with it so often is because people don't tell their story but simply complain about ethics. We can help you if you want. In order to do this you will have to give us information about your story – and we would prefer in a bullet pointed chronology without too much narrative. You say that you have obtained an independent report. There is a good move. Please could you post it here in PDF format so that we can have a look.
    • Good morning.   Ahh good  old Tax Credit overpayments, the gift that keeps on giving. It's almost guaranteed that if you claimed Tax Credits at some point in your life a charming little letter will pop through your door with a random national lottery size amount of money that you owe them, and it's always from many years ago. It's so thoughtful of them to send out huge demands during the most severe economic crisis of the last 100 years.   Nothing is going to happen quickly here, your SAR , when it arrives is going to be a huge box full of screen shots, call transcripts, what they assume your earnings were at the time.  It's very common for them to make mistakes, for example on mine within 5 minutes I noticed that they had my salary down as far higher than it was, which immediately took what I owed them down by £1200.   Boring summary as to why this happens,  The system is so complicated, that somebody always makes a mistake, either them or the Claimant, most people don't notice because the money is clawed back from their actual tax credit payments as  a tiny percentage that's barely noticeable. This works great until you suddenly start earning too much money and Tax Credits stop, then boom You owe us X thousand!  Unfortunately, being HMRC, and being utter rubbish sometimes that 'boom takes 15 years to arrive on your doorstep.   Ultimately, you may owe them something, in the end, they will talk like they are going to send the heavy mob in to repossess everything, reality is there are people all over the country paying them £20 per month or at some point in the future if you claim Universal Credit they might take a few quid a month off that. If you are really lucky they will just give it to a powerless DCA.   Once you have analysed your SAR, you may have grounds to appeal,  its also worth Googling Tax Credits COP 26 and reading carefully several times, perhaps some of the rules in there apply to you and may also be grounds for appeal. There are lots of mitigating factors that could even get the whole thing written off. Rest assured you can come back to this thread and ask anything,  I'll always respond and am very knowledgeable about this subject,   Keep us posted

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I am trying to help someone who nobody really wants to help.

 

There was a case of criminal damage Where this person involved was arrested for criminal damage to a house.

 

On his barristers advice he admitted the damage and was sentenced.

 

It now turns out that the complainant misled the police and also the star witness's known personally by the complainant has also pulled a fast one by misleading the police.

 

How can this be brought to the polices attention as the person prosecuted is sure damage was caused on purpose and blamed on them.

 

How do they go about notifying the police about this ?

 

Spelling and punctuation mistakes have been caused by Auto correct on my my mobile.

So whats cooking today ?

The only reason the offence was admitted was because there was no specific proof proving otherwise.

It is now that the proof is being provided via Subject access requests and also the new data regs.

So they admitted It even though they never did it?

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

You have admitted to the offence, now nobody would be interested in reopening a closed case, especially if the "new evidence " are not striking.

You need a solicitor to take this case, but it will cost and the key question will inevitably be: "Why did you plead guilty if you were innocent?"

It's not relevant to your case though. The article is about the police having evidence but failing to disclose it in court.

 

Your issue is that the police did disclose the evidence given by the complainant and the witness but the evidence both of them had given to the police was false.

 

If there is any possibility of overturning the conviction you will need specialist legal advice.

 

This government site suggests that if you pleaded guilty in court you cannot appeal against conviction (only against the sentence).

This directly points to exactly that. Witholding evidence from the defence and not investigating either .

You are clutching at straws. Nothing you have posted suggests the police have not disclosed evidence that they held. Your claim is that the evidence the police held was false. Not because of anything the police did, but because the complainant and witness deliberately lied in their statements to the police.

Well after starting this thread and giving it a good once over (paperwork). It has now come to our attention that other things are a miss as well. Which this report highlights. I would really not take the website as being rock hard proof. As it does not cover every scenario.

Of course any website or forum is not "rock hard proof".

For a start we haven't got all the evidence, so much of our advice is based on assumptions.

Secondly, you never know who is typing at the other end of the keyboard, it could even be the police officer in charge of the case or the witness who lied.

Did you expect professional legal advice?

You know it is not free?

And in any case, based on no evidence, even the best barrister in the world could only advise based on assumptions.
